Track Name: What if it breaks
Close your eyes and deeply hold your breath
your voice cries out in seek of my trust
and I just throw myself into your fire
despite the fact my secrets might end up as smoke

My mind told me "run while you still can
you´re better off free, without an anchor on your back"
but I fell, I fell right through the glass
into your garden and I lay there thinking

What if it breaks, what if it takes
all of our pride, and leaves no place to hide
What if it goes, so we end up as foes
who are breaking hearts, like it´s one of the arts
Is it worth it all

The gasoline is stinging in my eyes
as I hear you lighting up your cigarette
now on my knees I don´t mean to beg
I just wish it would have gone differently

With those eyes I should have realized
what I was getting myself into
but I fell, I fell right through the glass
into your garden and I lay there thinking
Track Name: It will be around
Nobody told me that the sun would be so bright
that the hardest things in life are so easy to deny
that the pieces of the puzzle aint always gonna fit

Nobody told me to treasure every breath
that our vital organs, are the easiest to break
that our words of love so often are misunderstood

Time, will take us away
and nothing´s ever gonna bring us back
but our love, might stay for awhile
for as long as you will whisper my name
it´ll be around

Nobody told me that war would be our faith
that no matter how hard we try things will stay the same
that people will always think that they know what is best 
for you and I

Nobody told me that we would fall in love
that your lovely eyes would be the prettiest I´d seen
that our story would be able to tell itself
